Liposuction removes excess fat. It is frequently done on the tummy, hips, thighs, neck and face. It is often a better option for women than a tummy tuck. Liposuction is not a weight reducing operation. It is not appropriate for patients who are extremely overweight. It may give the illusion that the patient has lost a lot of weight. Patients who are interested in liposuction may call Dr. Bandeian’s cosmetic surgery Bristol, TN office for a consultation.  The total cost for liposuction of the entire tummy and waist with local anesthesia and sedation by vein at Bristol Plastic Surgery Center is $5000.

The operation takes about 1 to 2 hours and is done through a few tiny incisions that, when healed, are barely visible. Patients should have a responsible adult drive them home from the surgery center and stay with them that night. There is usually not much pain. Bristol liposuction surgeon Dr. Bandeian instructs his patients to call him personally on the evening of their surgery to let him know how they are doing. He then checks with them the following day. A girdle is worn for about 4-6 weeks. The sutures are removed in about 7 days. If bruising occurs, it may last from 1 to 2 weeks. Patients may usually return to work a day or two after surgery if their work does not involve strenuous activities. The patient will retain the improvement even with limited weight.
